On TV this Monday: Olympic Trials make or break the London games for the best American swimmers, a Bunheads breakdown leaves Michelle in a bad way, Teen Wolf spills a secret and Lost Girl’s fight club is… on second thought, better not to talk about it. Here are nine programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm U.S. Olympic Trials: Swimming (NBC) | Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are a lock, but tune in live to see who else does — or doesn’t — earn a place on the U.S. team. Featured races include finals of the men’s and women’s 400m individual medleys and men’s 400m freestyle and semifinals of the men’s 100m breaststroke and women’s 100m butterfly.
8 pm Hell’s Kitchen (Fox) | The chefs must coordinate dinner service with a runway show. Guys, don’t sweat it: It’s not like the models are going to eat anything, anyway….
9 pm Bunheads (ABC Family) | Hubbell’s car conks out, which leaves Michelle stranded in a local recluse’s driveway. (I hope it’s not the man whose dog she stole last week, because that guy’s got a legitimate beef.)
9 pm Me @ the Zoo (HBO) | YouTube sensation Chris Crocker — of “Leave Britney alone!” fame — is the subject of this documentary about how going viral doesn’t necessarily equal success.
9 pm Eureka (Syfy) | A mysterious file leads Jo to uncover a spy ring inside Eureka. Let’s just say things don’t go so well after that.
9 pm Cake Boss (TLC) | Buddy crafts a Mt. Rushmore cake and Mary makes her (hopefully brief) return to the bakery.
10 pm Lost Girl (Syfy) | In this corner, Fae! And in this corner, Fae! Yep, that’s what Bo finds when she discovers an underground fighting ring.
10 pm Push Girls (Sundance) | In the wake of her husband’s visit, Angela considers separation; meanwhile, Mia and Tiphany try speed dating.
10 pm Teen Wolf (MTV) | The kanima shall be revealed! Is it Lydia? Jackson? Someone else…?
